Voters in Serbia head to polls to shape countries future


Serbians are voting Sunday to choose a new president, members of the country's 250-seat parliament and local authorities.

Polling stations open at 7 a.m. local time and will close at 8 p.m. (0500 to 1800GMT).

Parliamentary elections were supposed to be held in 2024 but President Aleksandar Vucic announced in October 2020 that snap parliamentary polls would be held in or before April 2022.

Besides the general elections, local elections will be held in 12 municipalities and two cities, including Belgrade.

Around 6.5 million eligible voters will elect members to the 250-seat National Assembly, the unicameral parliament, from 18 lists.

A total of 126 seats are needed for a majority in the assembly.

Meanwhile, eight candidates are competing in the presidential election.

Local elections will be held in the capital, Belgrade, and in the city of Bor.

Bor, with 48,615 residents, has 32 different ethnic groups represented among the population. It is one of the most ethnically mixed cities in Serbia.

Voters will cast ballots for the municipalities of Arandjelovac, Smederevska Palanka, Lucani, Knjazevac, Medvedja, Bajina Basta, Doljevac, Kula, Kladovo, Majdanpek, Secanj and Sevojno.
